Peoples Temple Collection; Box 19, Virtual Item 17, Q671- San Francisco radio program
March/ April 1976

This tape consists of segments of two recording sessions of the Peoples Temple weekly radio program in San Francisco, as well as numerous phone calls. More than half the segments were too short or out of context to understand what they were about.

In the first and last segments of the tape, Jones converses with several members of the Temple leadership about spiritual healing. The pacing is more theatrical than regular speech, due to the fact that they are recording broadcasts for radio. The sessions are largely unrehearsed, but there are numerous instances in which Jones stops the tape and goes back to re-record a section, either because there was something they left out, or something they wanted to retract.

Full summary of the recording available at Alternative Considerations of Jonestown website, along with the tape transcript.
